Vishal Arora & Tehmina Arora – Christian Bias Against Hindus
Vishal Arora (Picture Link) is an independent & freelance journalist and writer living in New Delhi, India. Vishal Arora’s articles have appeared in Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, The Deccan Herald, The Tribune, The Statesman, Mint, Indo-Asian News Service, Sify.com, Swagat, The Caravan, Compass Direct News, Religion News Service, World Politics Review, Lipido Media and Religious Watch. Vishal Arora has presented papers on the mixing of religion and politics in seminars organised by the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life in Washington DC (which focused on the dangers of “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”). Vishal Arora writes on socio-political affairs and human rights for national and foreign media with an almost exclusive focus on incidents of communal violence in India against the Christian minority. On the internet and on Vishal Arora’s official domain (vishalarora.co.in), his religious affiliation is not openly divulged (although some of his writings talk about God in a seemingly non-denominational way: 01 – 02 – 03 – 04 – 05). It is suspected that Vishal Arora’s religious affiliation is purposely suppressed and cleverly cloaked to avert accusations of Christian bias.
Vishal Arora Contacted Gerald Moreno About The Sai Controversy
On May 11th 2010, Gerald Moreno received the following email from Vishal Arora:
Vishal Arora: “Dear Mr. Gerald Moreno,
I am a journalist based in New Delhi, India. I am writing an article on Sathya Sai Baba, which includes the accusations by numerous ex-devotees. Most of those who made the allegations have told me that you have been the most active person to ‘spread hate’ against them. So, I wanted to give you a fair chance to respond to this. Can I also know how are you related to Sathya Sai Baba? Are you a devotee?
Also, I’d appreciate if you could say, in a few lines, why so many ex-devotees made the allegations?
Thanks and regards,
Vishal Arora ”
Gerald Moreno responded the same day (May 11th 2010) and his full response can be found on the Vishal Arora Correspondence Page. Vishal Arora adamantly refused to answer any and all questions posed to him by Gerald Moreno. This type of one-way and secretive behavior is not what one would expect from a credible journalist or writer. Apparently, Vishal Arora has much to hide and is not interested in maintaining an open, sincere and two-way dialogue with Gerald Moreno, whom he intends to write about. The reasons for Visha Arora’s secrecy have since come to light and may be disturbing to some.
Vishal Arora – Christian Bias Uncovered
Before Moreno received Vishal Arora’s email, Moreno contacted Lisa DeWitt about Robert Priddy’s 16-day absence from his blog (which was highly unusual considering Robert Priddy’s rabid blog postings on almost a daily basis). The very same day that Vishal Arora emailed Moreno (May 11th 2010) was the very same day that Robert Priddy resumed posting on his blog. Coincidence?
Moreno felt that since Vishal Arora implied he had talked extensively to ex-devotees and simply asked for a “few lines” from him, something did not feel “right”, so he decided to research Vishal Arora. It was quickly discovered that Vishal Arora’s official domain (vishalarora.co.in) was purchased and registered for him by NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary)
What is “NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary)”?
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
Our Mission Statement
The mission of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is to equip leaders to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandments through the local church and its ministries.
Our Seminary Target
Our target as a Seminary is healthy churches. We measure the effectiveness of our Seminary by the health of the churches that our graduates lead.
Our Core Values
Doctrinal Integrity — Believing that the Bible is the Word of God, we believe it, teach it, proclaim it, and submit our lives to it. Our confessional commitments are outlined in the Articles of Religious Belief and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
Spiritual Vitality — We are a worshiping community emphasizing both personal spirituality and gathering together as a Seminary family for the praise and adoration of God and instruction in His Word.<
Mission Focus — Our Seminary does not exist merely to get an education or to give an education. We are here to change the world by fulfilling the Great Commission and the Great Commandments through the local church and its ministries.
Characteristic Excellence — We want everything we do to be characterized by offering the utmost of our abilities and resources as a testimony to the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Servant Leadership — We follow the model of Jesus to exert leadership through nurturing and encouraging those around us.
Our Denominational Affiliation
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Seminary would not be financially viable apart from significant funding by the SBC Cooperative Program. The Charter of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary assigns ownership of the Seminary assets to the Southern Baptist Convention, requires that all NOBTS Trustees be elected by the Southern Baptist Convention, and declares that the Charter “may not be altered, amended, or repealed without the expressed prior consent of the Southern Baptist Convention.”
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was founded in 1917 by an act of the Southern Baptist Convention at their annual meeting that year in New Orleans. Originally named “Baptist Bible Institute,” New Orleans Seminary was the first theological institution to be created by direct action of the Southern Baptist Convention. It was originally created as an undergraduate institution modeled after Moody Bible Institute. Gradually, the school began to move toward graduate level training, and in 1946 the Convention renamed the institution “New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.”
The school was the fulfillment of a century-old dream of Baptists to establish a missionary training school in New Orleans as a gateway to Latin America, and as a mission center in the ungodly city of New Orleans. In 1914, P. I. Lipsey, editor of the Mississippi Baptist Record, wrote an impassioned editorial favoring the creation of a theological school in New Orleans: “A seminary (in New Orleans) would plant the Baptist cause in this city in a way that would immediately command the attention and the respect of all. It would be planting the siege guns at the enemies’ gates.”
Baptist Bible Institute opened its first session in October 1918 under the leadership of Byron H. DeMent, who served as president of the BBI from 1917 to 1928. “The Baptist Bible Institute is preeminently a child of providence and prayer,” DeMent said at his inauguration. Since that day, New Orleans Seminary has been known as “The School of Providence and Prayer.”
Others who have served as president of the school are William W. Hamilton Sr. (1928-42); Duke K. McCall (1943-46); Roland Q. Leavell (1946-58); H. Leo Eddleman (1959-70); Grady C. Cothen (1970-74); and Landrum P. Leavell II, nephew of Roland Leavell, (1974-95). On February 23, 1996, Dr. Charles S. “Chuck” Kelley, Jr., of Beaumont, Texas, was elected unanimously as the seminary’s eighth president. Prior to his election he had served at the seminary for 13 years as the Roland Q. Leavell Professor of Evangelism and most recently as the director of the Seminary’s Leavell Center for Evangelism and Church Health.
From its beginning until 1953, the school was located at 1220 Washington Avenue, in the heart of the Garden District of residential New Orleans. The current campus, at 3939 Gentilly Boulevard was purchased in 1947. The landmark entrance gates and fence from the Garden District mansion now are located on the front block of the Gentilly campus. The current property, once a 75-acre pecan orchard, has been transformed into a beautiful campus with more than 100 buildings. More than 20,000 men and women have prepared for ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
Our Doctrinal Commitments
All the faculty members of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary subscribe to the school’ historic confession, the Articles of Religious Belief, and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. Our President has signed on behalf of the Seminary a pledge to doctrinal faithfulness entitled “One Faith, One Task, One Sacred Trust: A Covenant Between Our Churches and Seminaries.” And the faculty also recently joined the other Southern Baptist seminary faculties in endorsing “What God Has Joined Together: A Resolution in Defense of Marriage”.
Needless to say, a Baptist Theological Seminary would never purchase and register a domain for someone who was not strongly allied with them, their beliefs, their practices and their missionary objectives. The Southern Baptist Convention is one of the most conservative, evangelical and fundamentalist Christian Churches in the USA and also has the largest number of Christian missionaries (more so than all other USA Christian Churches combined). The Baptist Center for Theology & Ministry’s Faith & Message Statement and NOBTS Articles of Religious Belief are of particular interest. The Southern Baptist Convention believes:
“It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man’s spirit by God’s Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on the part of all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.” (Reference)
Moreno emailed Vishal Arora on May 11th 2010 about this information and said:
Gerald Moreno: “Dear Vishal Arora,
It is my sincere hope that when you write your article about Sathya Sai Baba that you will divulge any association you may have with NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary), which registered your official domain http://vishalarora.co.in/. The About NOBTS page is of particular interest.
When you are attempting to write about a spiritual teacher who has a large Hindu following in India, I think this information is highly relevant and necessary. Needless to say, I have written extensively about various Christian movements against Sathya Sai Baba and your Pro-Christian writings, your friendships with various Christians and your association with an evangelical Christian ministry raises several red flags.
I must also say I am very concerned about what appears to be an extensive communication between you and ex-devotees and how you wanted me to summarize my views in a ‘few lines’ (which is what prompted me to research your associations more closely).
Therefore, I kindly ask that you maintain transparency in your writings pertaining to Sathya Sai Baba so that you will not be accused of bias or having ulterior motives like Vir Sanghvi, Paul Lewis, Tanya Datta, Michelle Goldberg and NineMSN A Current Affair.
If you decide to withhold your association with NOBTS and if I feel that your article does not give due justice to both sides of the Sai Controversy, I will be forced to write about this issue and make it public.
I sincerely hope there is less to this finding than I think there is. You are free to enlighten me.
Vishal Arora responded on May 12th 2010 and said (in part):
Vishal Arora: “There is no need for me to hide that I am a convert to Christianity, but I respect all religions and their followers. My brother studied at the NOBTS a few years ago when I registered my domain…
Thank you and regards,
Vishal Arora’s brother is Vivek Arora (Profile Subsequently Deleted – See Screencap). Vivek Arora pursued his PhD at NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary) from 2004 – 2009 and is a Research Associate for the Center for New Testament Textual Studies (which is also associated with NOBTS). Furthermore, the North American Mission Board (NAMB) said the following about Vivek Arora (Picture Link):
NAMB: “As a young man living in India, Vivek Arora had a dream that he would someday find a book that would answer all his questions and that he would be instrumental in bringing people together in a way that would let them live in harmony. He discovered that book years later when he came to faith in Christ while reading a Hindi translation of the Bible. As for people living in harmony, he believes the Great Commission is God’s plan for that. Today, Vivek and his wife, Manisha, are church planting missionaries in Boston, reaching out to the international community that has gathered from around the world in one of America’s great cities. ‘We are reaching out to international students and professionals,’ Vivek says. ‘Many come here from their countries for two or three years. If we can reach them for Christ the impact will be greatly multiplied when they return to their home countries.’” (Reference)
However, it is irrelevant if Vivek Arora studied at NOBTS (the only relevance being a conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian faith among members of the Arora family). NOBTS did not purchase and register a domain for Vivek Arora. NOBTS purchased and registered a domain for Vishal Arora. A Baptist Theological Seminary would never purchase and register a domain for someone who was not strongly allied with them, their beliefs, their practices and their missionary objectives. The fact that NOBTS purchased and registered Vishal Arora’s official domain strongly suggests he is allied with them and is possibly funded by them as well.
Considerable research was conducted into domains purchased by NOBTS and not even one other domain was found to be registered by NOBTS for any single individual besides Vishal Arora. Considering NOBTS Statement of Faith (that states there is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and that the unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, a place of everlasting punishment) and considering Vishal Arora’s ties with this conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian organization, it is very difficult to accept Vishal Arora’s Christian faith along with his comments about respecting all religions and their followers. It is also very disturbing that Vishal Arora, as a Christian convert, would be writing about Sathya Sai Baba (a revered spiritual teacher who happens to have a large Hindu following in India and a large multi-faith following world-wide).
Although Vishal Arora does not write “Anti-Hindu” articles per se, he does write extensively about communal violence in India against the Christian minority that tends to demonize “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right-Wing Hindus” (which are subjective descriptions often used on the internet to formulate “Christian vs Hindu” arguments). Vishal Arora has argued extensively against “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists”, “Right-Wing Hindus” and anyone he believes may be associated with them (which happens to include various gurus and spiritual teachers in India with large Hindu followings). In an article entitled “Religion and Politics in India”, Vishal Arora wrote:
Vishal Arora: “Religious leaders have enormous followings and acceptability in India. Not only the people, but also the politicians seek their ‘blessings’. There are many Hindu gurus who are known for their overt support to the BJP’s Hindu nationalist agenda. These gurus include Sadhvi Ritambhara, Morari Bapu, Asaram Bapu, Vasudevanand Saraswati, and Swami Satyamitranand Giri.
In July 2008, high-profile spiritual gurus, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Swami Ramdev, were the special guests at the launch of the Hindi version of BJP leader Advani’s autobiography, ‘My Country My Life’, in Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh state. The gurus reportedly praised Advani in their address.” (Reference)
Consequently, it is not surprising that Vishal Arora, as a Christian convert, is taking aim at popular gurus and spiritual teachers in India (who have large Hindu followings) and is attempting to associate them with “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”. It is an irrefutable fact that Vishal Arora’s writings are published on numerous conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian websites & blogs that are used to polarize Christians against Hindus.

Vishal Arora only writes one-way articles about alleged Christian persecution in India that systematically demonizes “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”. Needless to say, there is another side to the Christian persecution stories. In India, one cannot travel anywhere without seeing Christian graffiti painted on boulders near main traffic routes and on the rocks on high mountains tops. The author has personally seen these things all over India. How would Christians feel if Muslims or Hindus painted their religious symbols on boulders near main traffic routes and on the rocks on high mountain tops in their predominantly Christian countries? If this happened, there would be undeniable hostility and anger against Muslims or Hindus. Yet, when Christians paint their graffiti in India (which is predominantly a Hindu country) they cry “persecution” and play “martyrs” when Hindus and Muslims get hostile and angry with them. Why should Hindus and Muslims have to endure this type of fanatic religious behavior from minority Christians in their homeland?
There have been stories of Christians throwing beef on Hindu idols (Ref), Christians killing Hindus (Refs: 01 – 02 – 03 – 04), a Catholic priest (who was criminally charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Minnesota) being protected by his home diocese in India (Ref) and even fellow Christians admitting to the aggressiveness of Christian missionaries in India (Refs: 01 – 02).
Sita Ram Goel, K. M. Panikkar, Arun Shourie, M.S. Srinivasan and Gauri Viswanathan have written extensively and intelligently about conversion tactics in India by Christian missionaries (Ref: 01 – 02 – 03) and have sounded refuted Vishal Arora’s claim that Christianity came to India with the arrival of Apostle Thomas in Kerala in 52 AD (Ref). Christians have created an Indian Bible using Hindu imagery & Hindu scriptures and have also adopted Hindu names and outfits to trick Hindus into accepting Jesus Christ (Refs: 01 – 02 – 03 – 04). For example, see the Christian Yogi Bede Griffith Trust Website. Other types of inculturation and assimilation ploys include the Hindu’ization of Jesus Christ and the Hindu’ization of Christian symbols (the cross in English letters reads “Om Namah Cristaya” meaning “Om Obeisance to Jesus Christ” and “Christa Sharanam” meaning “Jesus Christ is our Refuge”).
Vishal Arora And The Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life
As mentioned in the introduction, Vishal Arora has presented papers on the mixing of religion and politics in seminars organised by the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life in Washington DC (which focused on the dangers of “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”). Do not let the fancy name fool you, the Oxford Centre For Religion and Public Life is a USA-based Christian organization founded by the Reverend Dr. Arne Fjeldstad (who is also the “Head of Communications” for the Anglican group GAFCON). The Oxford Centre For Religion and Public Life created the “project” domain GetReligion.org, which is owned and registered by Terry Mattingly (an Eastern Orthodox Christian who directs the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities). All of the contributors for GetReligion.org are Christians (mostly Christian converts and/or Orthodox Christians). Videos of a very nervous Vishal Arora (notice the repeated blinking of his eyes and gulping movements in his throat) were created by the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life and published on YouTube:
Vishal Arora was filmed in Washington DC by a Christian organization where he talked against “Right Wing Hindus”. Since Vishal Arora is an independent writer from India with no known ties to any specific media organization, where exactly is Vishal Arora getting his paycheck from and who is sponsering and/or funding his expensive trips to the USA?
Vishal Arora Invokes The Swastika Against Hindu Nationalists
Vishal Arora wrote an article entitled Swastika Terrorism, which claimed “The Indian government is ignoring the surge of Hindutva terrorism at its own risk.” Why would Vishal Arora associate a known Hindu symbol with “Hindutvas” (movements advocating for Hindu nationalism)?
The word “swastika” is derived from the Sanskrit word “svastika”, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote good luck. It is composed of “su” meaning “good, well” and “asti” “to be”. Svasti thus means “well-being”.
As noted by Monier-Williams in his Sanskrit–English dictionary, according to Alexander Cunningham, the swastika represents a monogram formed by interlacing of the letters of the auspicious words su-asti (svasti) written in Ashokan characters. Archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates from the Neolithic period in Ancient India. The swastika occurs mainly in the modern day culture of India, sometimes as a geometrical motif and sometimes as a religious symbol. It remains widely used in Indian religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Though once commonly used all over much of the world without stigma, because of its iconic usage in Nazi Germany the symbol has become stigmatized in the Western world, notably even outlawed in Germany
In Christianity, the swastika was used as a hooked version of the Christian Cross, the symbol of Christ’s victory over death. Some Christian churches built in the Romanesque and Gothic eras are decorated with swastikas, carrying over earlier Roman designs. Swastikas are prominently displayed in a mosaic in the St. Sophia church of Kiev, Ukraine dating from the 12th century. Swastikas also appear as a repeating ornamental motif on a tomb in the Basilica of St. Ambrose in Milan (Reference).
Vishal Arora’s invocation of the swastika stimga is a direct attack against Hindus who have been using that religious symbol for thousands of years. Vishal Arora, as a Christian convert, would appear to be inciting hostility and hatred against Hindus to his mainly Christian readers who are not familiar with the Hindu religion and its history with the swastika. As a matter of fact, fanatic Christians often claim that Hindus are “Nazi inspired”, “Hitler inspired”, “swastika worshipping”, “Nazi terrorists” , “using Nazi tactics”, “idolators”, “satanists”, “swastika terrorists”, etc. Shame of Vishal Arora for using the Hindu swastika as a prop to stigmatize Hindu Nationalists.
Vishal Arora’s Wife – Tehmina Arora
Tehmina Arora is the wife of Vishal Arora and she is the general secretary for the Christian Legal Association (CLA). What is the “Christian Legal Association”?
Christian Legal Association (CLA) aims on inspiring Christians in the legal profession to answer God’s call found in Micah 6:8 to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly before God”, by living wholeheartedly for God in their place of study or work, thinking about legal issues from a Biblical perspective.
CLA links approximately 600 Christian legal professionals across India and had established local networks in Bangalore, Chennai, Cuttack, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi.
The CLA team holds annual conferences and organizes regional and national seminars for Christian legal professionals. Fellowship and spiritual retreats provide CLA members encouragement and support in the exciting challenge of being a Christian lawyer.
Faith in Practise, CLA’s monthly newsletter and prayer calendar, and Persecution Report, a weekly persecution report, help lawyers and civil society to keep updated on issues that confront the church in India.
CLA’s involvement in law and policy change ensures that the collective voice of the Christian legal fraternity is heard.
By engaging with the churches and christian workers in providing legal trainings and legal aid, CLA provides its members the opportunity to participate in equipping the Body of Christ to prepared to meet the legal challenges that face the Church.
Membership is open to retired judges, lawyers, law professors and students, social workers and journalists and NGOs at a nominal membership fee. All members are required to affirm and uphold the Statement of Faith as a condition of membership.
What is the Christian Legal Association’s “Statement of Faith”?
All CLA members adhere to the following Statement of Faith
Trusting in Jesus Christ as my Saviour, I believe in:
– One God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
– God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
– The Deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; His vicarious death for our sins through which we receive eternal life; His bodily resurrection and personal return.
– The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.
– The Bible as the inspired Word of God.
Tehmina Arora also belong to Micah Challenge, which is described as:
“Micah Challenge is a global coalition between the World Evangelical Alliance and the Micah Network. The Micah Network brings together 330 Christian organizations providing relief, development and justice ministries throughout the world. The WEA embraces 420 million evangelical Christians in 127 countries.” (Reference)
The Micah Challenge website provided the following information about Tehmina Arora:
“Tehmina is the General Secretary of the Christian Legal Association, India. She has written over 30 articles on human rights issues, published in leading national dailies and magazines. Tehmina is frequently called upon to address groups at seminars across the country on the rights of religious minorities in India. She worked briefly at the Supreme Court of India as an advocate before joining the Christian Legal Association.” (Reference)
Micah Challenge is facilitated by the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and the Micah Network. The Council for Micah Challenge has ten members drawn from the leadership of Evangelical Alliances and Christian relief and development agencies from around the world. The chair is Rev Joel Edwards, General Director of Evangelical Alliance UK. The other Board Members are: Tehmina Arora (India), Andy Atkins (UK), Steve Bradbury (Australia), Loida Cariel (Peru), Jane Furniss (Micah Network), Paul Mususu (Zambia), Geoff Tunnicliffe (WEA) and Peter Vander Meulen (USA). Ken Morgan serves as the ex-officio treasurer of the Board.
Tehmina Arora also has a long-time family history involvement with the Lalbagh Methodist Church in India. According to Kuruvilla Chandy (an Indian Pastor), Tehmina Arora and her Grand-Parents worshipped at the Lalbagh Methodist Church:
“Dr B Jeyaraj and I were room mates at seminary. He was my junior then. Today he is a professor in Old Testament studies. Tehmina Arora is the grand daughter of a couple who worshipped at the Lalbagh Methodist Church when I was pastor there. She has visited and worshipped at Lalbagh during my time. She is now in charge of the legal department of the Evangelical Fellowship of India. Both Jeyaraj and Tehmina were at the conference in Bangalore” (Text Reference – Picture Reference)
This might explain why Vishal Arora made no mention to Tehmina Arora on his official domain. To Date: Neither Vishal Arora or Tehmina Arora have publicly divulged their husband/wife relationship (the FaceBook association where their relationship was discovered is private and can only be seen by members: See: Vishal Arora on FaceBook – Tehmina Arora on FaceBook).
Vishal Arora – In Conclusion
Vishal Arora has gone to great extents to package and present himself and his writings as unbiased and neutral. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Vishal Arora is a Christian convert, his wife and brother are conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christians and his official domain (vishalarora.co.in) was purchased and registered for him by the USA conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian group NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary), which believes:
“It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations.”…“The heathen, then, are under condemnation just as well as those who hear and reject the gospel, for they are sinners by both nature and practice.”…“We believe that the Christian life begins with conversion.” (Refs: 01 – 02)
Vishal Arora is also affiliated with the Christian organization “Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life” and the Christian news agency “Compass Direct News”. Therefore, Vishal Arora’s writings and views about “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus” are biased, self-serving and written with ulterior motives. Vishal Arora and Tehmina Arora have a Christian agenda that specifically targets “Right-Wing Hindus” (which can actually refer to any Hindu who does not denounce Hinduism and accept Christianity) and anyone they perceive as having affiliations with “Right-Wing Hindus”.
Vishal Arora, Tehmina Arora, Vivek Arora and NOBTS are “Right-Wing Christians” who feel it is their religious duty and moral imperative to convert Hindus to their Christian faith. So when Vishal Arora “innocently” takes aim at popular gurus and spiritual teachers in India (who have large Hindu followings) and attempts to associate them with “Right-Wing Hindus”, make no mistake about it: Vishal Arora is on a Christian crusade for his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Sekharji, Kaleshwar And The Bogus $1 Million Picture Extortion Gossips Against Sathya Sai Baba
Beginning in the year 2002, several Ex-Devotees (specifically Sanjay Dadlani, Tony O’Clery and Robert Priddy) erroneously and falsely claimed that there is “photographic evidence” in existence of Sathya Sai Baba allegedly engaged in sexual acts.
The so-called “photographic evidence” rumor was originally started by a guru-wannabee named “Sekharji” (real name “Chandrasekhar Balasubramanian”) who carefully primps his hair and wears an orange gown to make himself look like Sathya Sai Baba (click thumbnail to enlarge):
Sekharji sent the following post to Ex-Devotees:
Sekharji: “Today, there are so many Extortionists, that SSB is letting most of them go on telling stories without the reward for silence. It seems that the money supply is now getting low. So now, there are a whole lot of exDevotees attacking each Other to achieve the status as being the last One standing for SSB to deal with. There are even Imposters planted to help confuse and frighten the whistleblowers. I enforce My claim for the previous statements to You in the following way.
here is a Swamiji named ‘Kaleshwara’ somewhere near Banglore. He was a young Boy when SSB molested Him. He, however, brought a camera and took pictures of the activites without SSB knowing. Later, He extorted SSB and got $1 million dollars to start His own ashram. Go to Him in Banglore, and privately ask. He is quite open and honest about the whole matter. He may still even show You the pictures as He did to many Others.
Sekharji – 06-28-2002 08:43 PM ET (US)
There are several profound problems with Sekharji’s claims:
- First of all, Swami Kaleshwar has never lived “somewhere near Bangalore” and his ashram is not in Bangalore, Karnataka. Kaleshwar’s ashram is in Penukonda, Andhra Pradesh (250kms away from Bangalore and in another state). Therefore, Sekharji’s information about Swami Kaleshwar is wholly incorrect and is therefore highly suspect.
- Secondly, Sekharji never said that he saw the alleged pictures himself, first-hand. Sekharji simply repeated a rumor and gossip he allegedly heard.
- Lastly, why would Kaleshwar publicly admit that he blackmailed and extorted $1 million from Sathya Sai Baba when extortion and blackmail are illegal and criminal acts punishable with incarceration and/or hefty fines?
How can anyone believe anything Sekharji (a Sathya Sai competitor) has to say when he disseminated total disinformation about Kaleshwar?
As if Sekharji’s claims were not ridiculous enough, Robert Priddy (an Ex-Devotee) actually had the audacity to say (click thumbnail to enlarge):
Robert Priddy: “I have ascertained that both prints and a negative of this former student engaged in oral sex with Sathya Sai Baba are extant and will eventually be made public in the appropriate legal setting.”
Why should Robert Priddy wait for a legal setting? Why not anonymously send the alleged pictures to the Indian Media or publish them anonymously on YouTube as has been done with Swami Nithyananda? What faster way to bring down Sathya Sai Baba than by publishing the alleged photos? One video of Swami Nithyananda engaged in questionable behavior was enough to bring him down completely. What are Ex-Devotees waiting for?
Robert Priddy himself claimed that he personally “ascertained that both prints and a negative of this former student engaged in oral sex with Sathya Sai Baba are extant”. Robert Priddy is a pathological liar of the worst order and is a total fraud adept in peddling rumors and gossips as the “irrefutable truth”. Robert Priddy never saw the alleged pictures and therefore never “ascertained” anything.
Whenever anyone demands evidence or proof from Robert Priddy, he flares his nostrils, reddens his cheeks, bulges his eyeballs and shrieks shrilly at the top of his voice “confidentiality”, “in a legal setting”, “only to bona fide investigators”, etc. However, when it comes to Sai Devotees or Pro-Sai Activists, Robert Priddy demands evidence, proof and explanations from them that can never meet his expectations.
Ex-Devotees had every opportunity (and still do) to give the alleged pictures to the BBC and/or various other journalists sympathetic with their cause. To Date: No one has EVER done so. Why not? Because the “$1 Million Picture Extortion” story is $1 million fraud. That’s why.
It is also amusing to note how Robert Priddy referred to Swami Kaleshwar as a “former student”. Swami Kaleshwar was never a former student at Sathya Sai Baba’s Colleges and Robert Priddy cannot provide a scintilla of credible evidence to the contrary.
Sanjay Dadlani & Tony O’Clery Weigh In:
Sanjay Dadlani: I’ve noticed that you pro-SB people are in complete denial of the fact that we have photographic evidence of SB molesting a child. Oh well, so be it. :-)
Sanjay Dadlani: We even have photographic proof of his sexual molestation, which is red-hot proof that he is a sex abuser.
Sanjay Dadlani: There is photographic proof of Sai baba performing oral sex on an ex-student. I don’t know if it is Sai Baba who is the giver or the receiver, but oral sex is definitely involved in this photogrpahic evidence. When it finally becomes available, I wonder how the braindead devotees will react to it?
Tony O’Clery: There is some kind of a photo…
Tony O’Clery: Namaste, The photo exists. It was taken long before the easy internet photo editing, so I don’t know the forensics of it. I have talked to Premanand about this, and indicated to him that it wouldn’t be available for his law suit due to the ever present danger to the owner. This is what I understand……..Tony
Tony O’Clery: HOWEVER I KNOW FOR SURE THAT A CERTAIN PERSON HAS PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE OF SB MOLESTING!! He is at present too scared to release it for it would mean an certain death sentence and he lives in India, the prashanti goons would get him for sure, as they have so many others.
Tony O’Clery: Namaste, You know cameras can be coin size now with wide lenses. I don’t know the exact format used but the photos or whatever do exist, believe me and have done for a couple of years. They will come out eventually, now it is too dangerous for the boy he and his parents would be murdered by sb’s goons from the prashanti mafia, or the pn police……Tony.
(QuickTopic Forum, post 1728)
Tony O’Clery: Namaste, I have it on good authority that there is a photo of sb molesting a boy. However the parents are still devotees and the boy is frightened for his life if his name is revealed. His name has been passed on to a safe place in case he is murdered by sb or his gang of goons…Tony.
Notice how Robert Priddy, Sanjay Dadlani and Tony O’Clery cannot keep their stories straight and consistent? The alleged “victim” is changed from Swami Kaleshwar to an anonymous “former student” by Robert Priddy. The anonymous “former student” is then changed to an anonymous “child” by Sanjay Dadlani. The anonymous “child” is then changed to an anonymous “boy” whose parents are still Sai Devotees by Tony O’Clery. Notice how Swami Kaleshwar is completely filtered out of the story and he is replaced with an anonymous former student / child / boy whose story must be guarded out of safety concerns and confidentiality. What a bunch of rubbish!
Sanjay Dadlani first claimed that Anti-Sai Activists are in actual possession of the pictures. Then Sanjay Dadlani claimed that he did not know who was the “giver or the receiver” in the pictures (meaning he and other ex-devotees never saw them)!
Similarly, Tony O’Clery has never (admittedly) seen the alleged “photographic evidence” for himself. Tony O’Clery is simply perpetuating unverifiable rumors and gossips. Tony O’Clery has no information whatsoever about the alleged picture(s) and said that there is “some kind of photo” in existence. How’s that for objective? Tony O’Clery also alleged that the picture was “taken long before the easy internet photo editing”. This simply is untrue. Photo fraud has a long history that can be traced back prior to Sathya Sai Baba’s birth. For example, the famous Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the Cottingley Fairies case of photographic fraud going back to the early 1920’s.
This is the type of typical sleaze that Ex-Devotee’s peddle and perpetuate against Sathya Sai Baba.
Objective & Verifiable Information About Swami Kaleshwar
Paula Gloria released some YouTube videos of Swami Kaleshwar in which a full-sized picture of Sathya Sai Baba could clearly be seen in Kaleshwar’s ashram in Penukonda. Seeing is believing:
As one can see, Swami Kaleshwar has a garlanded photo of Sathya Sai Baba in his ashram. Why would an alleged sexual molestation victim keep a photo of his sexual abuser in his ashram and put flower garlands on it? Once again, another Anti-Sai rumor bites the dust.

LSD Advocate Robert Priddy Defending Drug User From The Secret Swami Documentary
LSD Advocate Robert Priddy is a big fan of the Secret Swami Documentary. So much so, Robert Priddy monomaniacally blathers about the Secret Swami on his Anti-Baba WordPress blog like a person neurotically obsessed with repetition and redundancy.
It would appear that Robert Priddy’s fascination with the Secret Swami program revolves around Alaya Rahm, a man who fully admitted that he was a drug addict and alcoholic in official court records! Apparently, LSD advocate Robert Priddy feels a kinship with drug user Alaya Rahm and therefore constantly feels the need to defend him.
In “Response To Form Interrogatories” in Alaya Rahm’s self-dismissed lawsuit against the Sathya Sai Baba Society (Form Interrogatory No. 6.3, Set One) Alaya Rahm fully admitted that he had been a daily user of illegal street drugs and alcohol from 1995 – 2005. Consequently, during Alaya Rahm’s “Divine Downfall” and India Today Anti-Sai interviews and during the filming of the BBC Documentary “Secret Swami” and the “Seduced By Sai Baba” Danish Documentary, Alaya Rahm was under the influence of illegal street drugs and alcohol while relating his alleged sexual encounters with Sathya Sai Baba. This crucial information wholly undermines Alaya Rahm’s credibility and irreparably compromises the integrity of his claims. Needless to say, Alaya Rahm’s alcoholism and drug addiction have been purposely suppressed from the general public by Anti-Sai Activists, the Rahm Family, Tanya Datta and the media.
The Big Question: Is A Decade-Long Daily User Of Illegal Street Drugs And Alcohol Seeking A Money Settlement Credible? Apparently, Robert Priddy & Barry Pittard think so. You be the judge: (Picture 01 – Picture Two).
Alaya Rahm Attempted To Sue The US Sathya Sai Baba Society For Money But Ended Up Self-Dismissing His Own Lawsuits On The Advice Of His Lawyer. In Form Interrogatory No. 6.2-3, Set One: Alaya Rahm Also Blamed Sai Baba For His Dropping Out Of College, Inability To Concentrate, Difficulty Maintaining A Job, Nervous Tics, Nightmares And Fear Of Being A Homosexual. Despite These Psychologically Traumatic Claims, Alaya Rahm And His Parents Never Sought Medical Or Psychiatic Treatment For Any Alleged Trauma And Were Unable To Itemize Any Wage Losses.
Alaya Rahm & Drug Dealer Valdez T. Woods
Supporting Alaya Rahm’s involvement with illegal street drugs and drug addicts is a secondary court case in November 2007 where Alaya Rahm testified on behalf of his friend Valdez T Woods, who was arrested and convicted for possession of crack cocaine and marijuana with the intent to deliver (PDF Reference). As a matter of fact, Valdez T Woods was arrested within a mile of Alaya Rahm’s then current residence (as revealed in official court records). Alaya Rahm was identified as a “friend and associate” of drug dealer and drug addict Valdez T Woods.
Following In The Moral & Ethical Footsteps Of Ex-Devotees
During the filming of the Secret Swami documentary, Dr. Michael Goldstein was secretly filmed in the privacy of his home by BBC Interviewers who subjected him to a series of questions in a clearly confrontational tone of voice. Although Goldstein was composed for the majority of the interview, he answered one question with great emotion and Anti-Sai Activists (instead of portraying him in a balanced and fair way) carefully clipped specific movie frames from the Secret Swami Program and made self-serving pictures of him that are widely distributed on Anti-Sai websites and blogs, along with their typical slurs and misleading comments.
The BBC Interviewers demanded from Goldstein that Sathya Sai Baba be subjected to a “proper legal process or a legalistic process”. However, the BBC Interviewers never asked Alaya Rahm or his family why they failed to resort to a “proper legal process or a legalistic process” in India against Sathya Sai Baba. Why should Goldstein or the Sai Organization initiate a legal or legalistic inquiry into Alaya Rahm’s allegations when Alaya Rahm and his parents never filed a basic police complaint, FIR or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India?
Therefore, since Ex-Devotees (who can often be seen boasting that they are rational, reasonable, moral, ethical, sensitive, honest, law-abiding and decent individuals) feel they can take picture frames from the Secret Swami Program and broadcast them on the internet, Gerald Joe Moreno see no reason why he cannot follow in Ex-Devotee’s footsteps and do the same thing. Consequently, this webpage was the direct result of Ex-Devotee’s reprehensible online behavior.

- In: Allegations Against Sathya Sai Baba | Barry Pittard | Gerald Moreno | Joe Moreno | Paramahamsa Nithyananda | Robert Priddy | Sai Baba | Sai Controversy | Sathya Sai Baba | Swami Nithyananda
- Comments Off on Yuvarani Nithyananda Sex Scandal Proves Indian Courts Take Action Against CREDIBLE Allegations
Yuvarani Nithyananda Sex Scandal Proves Indian Courts Take Action Against CREDIBLE Allegations
The global publicity surrounding the Swami Yuvarani Nithyananda “Sex Scandal” proves that Indian Courts, Indian Police and various Indian investigating agencies do not shield or protect popular Swamis, Gurus or GodMen in India and are more than willing to investigate, arrest and detain Swamis, Gurus and Godmen against whom there exists credible evidence of sexual abuse, molestation or corruption.
Ex-Devotees of Sathya Sai Baba (particularly Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy) have desperately and dishonestly been trying to associate Swami Nithyananda (Dhyanapeetam) with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba (Prashanti Nilayam) by making dubious, absurd and blatantly untruthful comparisons between them. Interested readers can reference Gerald Joe Moreno’s previous article entitled Paramahamsa Nithyananda Sex Scandal And A Comparision To Sathya Sai Baba.
Swami Nithyananda was a popular and famous Guru who had lakhs of devotees in India and abroad, which included high ranking Indians. When presented with credible evidence of inappropriate behavior, the official and public outcry was immediately evident and Yuvarani Nithyananda was arrested. Lawyer R. Karthikeyan requested a Madras high court to seek a CBI probe against Nithyananda and the Swamy was arrested. The publicity surrounding the allegations against Nithyananda have been unremitting and continual in the news, on YouTube and on blogs all around the world.
So, the BIG questions that Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy wholly ignore are:
- Why haven’t there been similar outcries against Sathya Sai Baba in India? Surely, if the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba were so credible, there should be PROOF.
- Where are all the court cases, police reports and FIRs filed first-hand in India by alleged victims against Sathya Sai Baba?
- Where are all the parents and relatives to the “dozens”, “hundreds” and/or “thousands” of children who have allegedly been molested by the Guru? Where are their court cases, police complaints or FIRs?
The fact of the matter is that controversy surrounding Sathya Sai Baba is all smoke and no fire. The only people making all the fuss against Sathya Sai Baba are mentally imbalanced defamers who have actually had the audacity to disperse and publish falsified and fraudulent sexual molestation libels against Gerald Joe Moreno. For example, see the following articles written by Gerald Moreno defending himself from Ex-Devotee’s feral attacks, libels and defamations:
- Gerald Moreno Refutes Being Sexually Abused By Sathya Sai Baba
- Gerald Moreno Refutes Priddy’s Sexual Abuse Libels: 01 – 02 – 03 – 04 – 05 – 06 – 07 – 08
- Gerald Moreno Refutes Dadlani’s Sexual Abuse Libels: 01 – 02
- Gerald Moreno Refutes van der Sandt’s Sexual Abuse Libel
- Alleged Sexual Molestation Victim Comes Forward With A Shocking Revelation
If Ex-Devotees have the audacity to fabricate and falsify sexual molestation stories against Joe Moreno, what other “sexual molestation” lies are they peddling as the “irrefutable truth” to unsupecting readers on the internet?
There are entirely valid reasons why there have been no public outcries against Sathya Sai Baba. First and foremost, there is no credible evidence that Sathya Sai Baba did anything wrong. There are no basic police complaints, FIRs or court cases filed first-hand by any alleged victim against Sathya Sai Baba in India.
The only people making all the fuss against Sathya Sai Baba are people who were never sexually abused themselves, who never witnessed a single criminal act themselves and who have taken it upon themselves to act as proxy-spokespersons for alleged victims (who are apparently incompetent, cannot speak for themselves and who refused free “world-class legal resources” from Ex-Devotees).
So when Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy writhe their hands, gnash their teeth and raise a huge cry about Swami Nithyananda on their Anti-Baba WordPress blogs, make no mistake about it: It’s all drama and theatrics for cheap internet publicity.

Ranjitha & Swami Nithyananda Sex Scandal And A Comparison To Sathya Sai Baba
Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy (both caustic critics and defamers of Sathya Sai Baba and others) wrote amusing articles on their Anti-Sai WordPress blogs feebly attempting to draw caricatured comparisions between the Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji “sex scandal” and Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
What actual comparisons can be drawn between Nithyananda and Sathya Sai Baba? What actual parallels can be made? Let us find out:
About Paramahamsa Nithyananda: There are actual videos with actual footage of Swami Nithyananda engaging in consentual & intimate behavior with Tamil actress Ranjitha: YouTube Video 01 – YouTube Video 02.
About Sathya Sai Baba: There are no videos with actual footage of Sathya Sai Baba engaging in any sort of consentual & intimate behavior with anyone.
CONCLUSION: There is simply NO comparison between Nithyananda and Sathya Sai Baba whatsoever.
About Paramahamsa Nithyananda: Nityananda admitted he was the person in the YouTube videos and admitted that the Tamil actress Ranjitha engaged in the behaviors recorded therein (Reference).
About Sathya Sai Baba: Sathya Sai Baba has never (ever) made any sort of admission to any sort of inappropriate behavior and there are no videos of the guru engaging in any sort of questionable behavior.
CONCLUSION: There is simply NO comparison between Nithyananda and Sathya Sai Baba whatsoever.
About Sathya Sai Baba: No alleged victim has ever filed (first-hand) a single court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India for any alleged acts of impropriety. Sathya Sai Baba has never (ever) had to obtain legal representation and has never (ever) submitted a writ petition defending himself. Furthermore, no basic police complaints have ever been filed first-hand against Sathya Sai Baba in India by any alleged victim (Reference).
CONCLUSION: There is simply NO comparison between Nithyananda and Sathya Sai Baba whatsoever.
The fact of the matter is that Barry Pittard and Robert Priddy are bitter and vindictive extremists who argue their case via conspiracy, speculation and homo-erotic self-projection. It is apparent that Pittard & Priddy are attempting to gain cheap publicity (the only kind they can obtain) for their blogs by writing about the highly-charged controversy surrounding Swami Nithyananda and Tamil actress Ranjitha.
Gerald Joe Moreno has written a strongly defended article entitled Refuting The Allegations Against Sathya Sai Baba With Factual Information that exposes the many gutter and smear campaigns waged by Barry Pittard, Robert Priddy and Ex-Devotees on the internet.
Despite Pittard & Priddy’s desperate and frenzied attempts to smear Sathya Sai Baba and draw dubious comparisions with Swamiji Nithyananda and Swamiji Bhimanand, Sathya Sai Baba has never (ever) had a single police complaint filed against him by any alleged victim and not even one mother or father has come forward with a public grievance or court case in India alleging impropriety against the Guru.
How’s that for a real eye-opener?
